Blue Apatite

Apatite is a crystal usually seen in shades of yellow, green and blue, with the 'neon' varieties being the most popular. It is easily mistaken for tourmaline and beryl, hence it takes it name from Greek mythology, where Apate was the personification of deceit and deception. Blue Apatite is the most popular of the Apatite colours, with the most striking blue colours being found in Madagascar. Transparent gems are faceted and highly desired by collectors, as they are too soft to be worn in jewellery with a hardness of only 5.
